Many thanks to Roda @ Growing Self for nominating me for this award. The ‘Growing Self’ blog is one of my favorite places to visit each and every day. Whether it’s through WordPress or Facebook, I find so many amazing and inspirational moments on this blog, it’s truly a remarkable place to get lost in. I strongly encourage everyone to find a few minutes to search the depths of this exciting garden as it grows.

Your Gifts to Me

Jenn: You are amazing in all that you do. I have complete and utter respect for your commitment to your family, friends, personal goals and blog. Each and every day you surprise me with a beautifully worded memory, a healthy recommendation, book reviews, interest in children literature, inspiration to make the the world a better place or unstoppable connection with so many other bloggers. I am glad to know you and I want the blogging community to have the same opportunity as I’ve had these last few months. Thank you for always sending me fantastic comments, ideas, compliments, suggestions, friendship, motivation and comfort. I appreciate you.

When Roda nominated me, I had only a very few people in mind to continue passing on the wonderful award, and you are one of them. I believe you already know Roda, and she knows you, but if not, you both should connect. You’d love chatting! This award is well-deserved and I cannot wait to see what joy and fun you bring to our online blogging world each day. Thank you.

 

 

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

    James, this about brought me to tears. First, I want to say congrats and you deserve this award! You would be my first nomination for it. Your posts are always inspiring to me and your writing is outstanding. I was just discussing your 365 daily challenge with Claire! You’ve been there since I first got started and I’ve always felt lucky to be connected with you. Thank you for being such a great friend and thank you for this nomination. I’m so very honored. 🖤🖤🖤

    I’m heading to check out Roda’s blog now…

        I appreciate you too, but I can’t give Ryder away. He is very attached to me… although I’ve seen pictures of him having fun without me when I’m on vacation, to maybe for a short trip.

        Oh, I’m sure he is very attached to you. I’m glad that you have each other. He’s so beautiful! His colors almost remind me of a fox. So majestic. Please give him a squeeze for me. 🐕❤
